Chawla praises spin sensation Markande

Kolkata, April 13: Experienced Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) spinner Piyush Chawla on Friday praised Mumbai Indians’ leg-spinner Mayank Markande who has taken the Indian Premier League (IPL) by storm in the first few matches. Markande, picked out as Mumbai’s surprise package, has taken as many as seven wickets in two matches. “I have seen him for the first time. I think he is doing very well and I wish him luck,” Chawla told reporters on the sidelines of a promotional event.
Markande, who has got an excellent wrong ‘un, is the purple cap holder — given to the bowler with most number of wickets — now and almost bowled Mumbai to victory in the opening two matches against Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad respectively. IANS
